About this book

Spatial uncertainty analysis has become a recognized discipline that integrates expertise from geographic information science, remote sensing, spatial and classical statistics and many others. The chapters are divided into two sections; the first section concentrates on accuracy assessment issues and the second on modelling uncertainty.This book will be useful both to those new to spatial uncertainty assessment and to experienced practitioners. Those interested in the application of appropriate uncertainty assessment techniques are provided with examples of many applications based in remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS). For researchers, this book presents a snapshot of the state-of-the-art of uncertainty assessment, providing theoretical chapters based in classical and spatial statistics.
